Hey there (:
I'm a student from Norway, currently studying in an upper secondary school with focus on visual arts. I'm at my second year.
I also don't know what to do with my life, but I sure would like to draw.
I'd love any sort of constructive critisism I can receive. c:

Beutiful, what a talent
Sorry for my poor english
Pretty good, I cant wait to see more.
Hey!! Really neat style you have going there! ^___^ Reminds me of cartoons that I watched waaay back...they had spice!! They had lots of life! Yours are lookin' the same! And it's great seeing that you're also working with anatomy--figure drawing type stuff!
I'll say good success with digital painting from scratch! I can't say much about the effort yet, because that's pretty much how I started a picture the other day. Is there a certain way you want the shading to look? Keep it closely in mind, because the way you want your picture to end up--cartoony, realistic, a little of both, something else--will be influenced a good deal by how you shade and even outline the drawing (I won't go into details unless you think it'll help you out).
Thanks a bunch for your kind comments. c:
JazzW: I'm not sure how I want to do the shading yet... It's sort of experimental, though I know I'm not aiming for something super-realistic... Sort of cartoony but not too simple either.
Anyway, here's some stuff I did today...
I did this one this evening, partly to experiment a bit with light and colours and stuff, partly to relax and have fun, and partly because I wanted to paint a hairy dinosaur-king.
I'm not sure if I'll finish this one or not, though I obviously need to get into the habit of finishing stuff...
The girlie from yesterday, inked and coloured at school during lunch some time...
I used felt-tip pens for this one, because that was what I had at hand right there, though normaly I use brushes and pen-nibs because those are a lot more versatile, and working with those actually makes the inking process fun.
Thanks, I'll try that. c: I guess I'm a bit afraid of watercolours yet, they are so unpredictable. That's also why I like them so much though, I reckon...
Here's some more sketches from the last few days. I've been feeling a little bit sick, so I have mostly been sleeping and playing Twilight Princess, rather than drawing. Bad me.
I like the watercolours too. Inventive characters. Also the one sitting on the chair in this page http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1237330420 looks very, I don't know what to call it, well posed? Looks beliveable.
Wow! I really like the one with the big guy and the cat.
Some recent sketches... Hopefully they are a bit better than some of my previous things, since it's been forever since I posted anything here again.
Painting done for an assignment at school:
A concept for a character:
Some doodles and ideas for a project we're doing at school right now.
Very nice sketchbook! I love all the characters you've created, very rich in emotion and personality. The water colors bring back some long ago memories to me for some reason, dunno since I don't remember ever really using water colors but I must have since they bring back fond memories, lol
c: Some doodles from the past few days...
These are some doodles from a sort of project I have going on my own:
These are for a school project about animal ornaments in different parts of the world... I'm going to do a bunch of sketches for scandinavian and germanic styles, these are just a few for the "around the world" part of the project...
Some of these are less serious than they probably should be...
There were more but that was pretty boring.
And here's a self portrait.
aww sooo cute drawings!!
I love the little animals you did in watercolor!
and that gryphon with tea has some attitude hah.
looking forward to more.
First of all, in general, I must say you really have got your style, your line flow and your proportions pretty much as down as they can be. Not a lot of room for improvement in this comical style. How ybout showing us some traditional stuff?
Your use of colour is great as well, and as I mentioned befor, your lines are very precise and say alot ybout the volume they are describing. I would love to see more stuff!
Thank you. (:
I haven't been doing much traditional lately, which is sad because I love painting. It's just too easy to just plug in the tablet, compared to finding all the equipment to start painting, not to mention having to clean up afterwards, haha.
Here's some sketches from the past week:
oh jeeeeeee, I love your characters and expressive cartoony style. stuff like this always makes me want to keep on drawing (and I must say, your watercolours are wonderful and I'd love to see some more. yummyyumyumyum)
What an overwhelming lesson to all artists! Be not afraid of absurdity; do not shrink from the fantastic. Within a dilemma, choose the most unheard-of, the most dangerous, solution. Be brave, be brave! - Isak Dinesen
Various odd stuff today. Some were done in class and some were done last weekend...
